Doug Elfman

Las Vegas, Nevada

First of all, I love you. Second of all, hi. My name is Doug Elfman. I am a page 3A columnist at the Las Vegas Review-Journal. I write about international celebrities, Vegas performers, strip clubs and porn stars. I have interviewed Prince backstage, Luciano Pavarotti, David Bowie, Paul McCartney, Robert Plant, Ozzy Osborne, and thousands of other famous people you know, including Puff Daddy (he literally offered me food off his plate, pretty nice of him, don't you think?), Britney Spears, Kim Kardashian, Robin Williams, and Ellen Degeneres. I have also reviewed their shows. My first novel is supposed to come out this year. It's a "G"-rated, heartwarming tale of a woman, her mom and her daughter, as the main character lady travels life with loves and loss, in a journey of epic interiors. Come to think of it, it's not super heartwarming, but it's well-written, I hope. Keep your fingers crossed. I grew up in the South, New Orleans and Athens, Ga., with nibbles of Little Rock, Winnsboro, La., Baton Rouge (where I graduated from LSU), Orlando, Daytona Beach, Panama City, Atlanta and Knoxville. I was born in San Francisco, but we moved when I was 2, so that's not very informative. I was the TV critic at the Chicago Sun-Times for several years, even though I tried to tell editors there I didn't watch TV or even have cable. Crazy editors. Vegas is the place I most feel home, I have to say. It's scrumpdileitious. Oh, and I am the Trademarked Game Dork. I started writing video game reviews in 2002 or so, and I didn't miss filing a weekly column for 10 years until I recently put the Dork on hiatus to make time for even more fun things, including my work for the Review-Journal. I have won a bunch of very fancy awards. But honestly, my greatest award is loving you.
